I am a student and want to know whether I need Dutch health insurance

Am I subject to compulsory insurance under the Long-term Care Act (Wlz)?

If you have come to the Netherlands to study here and have received a letter from the CAK saying that you do not have Dutch health insurance, you can ask us to check whether you are covered by compulsory insurance under the Long-term Care Act (Wlz). If you are, you will also be obliged to take out Dutch health insurance.
